First Look at Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers Released

The casting couldn't be more flawless: quintessential Hollywood good guy Tom Hanks will play beloved children's television star Fred Rogers in a new biopic about the television pioneer.

One of the more fascinating elements of Fred Rogers is that he was that guy on television.

The first image of Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is here and it will brighten your day. Specifically, the biopic will look at Rogers' relationship with journalist Tom Junod, who wrote a profile of Rogers for Esquire in 1998.

The Mister Rogers biopic, which is slated to come out in October 2019, is inspired by the life of Fred Rogers, the inspirational and inimitable host of the children's TV show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
